i think that the transplantation point generally speaking is
correct, though i think it was liver/pancreas rather than heart.
baboon hearts seem to be more commonly chosen for the (still very
rare) interspecies heart transplants.

but the premise is entirely weak unless it can be shown that
the reason for transplant success is *similarity* of antigens and
not the *absence* or *reduction* of antigens in pigs that would
lead to rejection. using the same kind of logic - most transplants
from one human being to another are strongly rejected - one could
conclusively reject the idea that humans are descended from adam
and eve. clearly we are far too different from another to have
descended from a single - uhh - married couple.
